Blockchain.info, one of the oldest and leading bitcoin software platforms, has announced the introduction of the Ether (ETH) cryptocurrency to its wallets.

According to the announcement, customers are now able to toggle between Bitcoin and Ether to manage and transact funds quickly and easily. Additionally, Blockchain has also integrated ShapeShift so that trading BTC to ETH and vice versa can happen all from one place.

Peter Smith, CEO of Blockchain, commented:

“As popularity of Ethereum has grown, so has the desire from our customers to have the option to manage multiple digital assets within their Blockchain wallets. We are thrilled to introduce this new functionality to our community and will continue to find ways to make interacting with digital assets even easier.”

Managing multiple accounts is an added challenge for consumers. Since Blockchain wallets are noncustodial, customers have greater security and control over their funds than on alternative platforms. Today’s integration offers a consistent product experience with a centralized dashboard with flexible tools for all users, whether a new beginner or seasoned investor. 

Today, Blockchain.info has customers across 140 countries with over 16 million wallets activated. Since 2011, the company has focused on creating products that make storing, transacting, and hedging digital currency a frictionless experience.
